I've used GQRX for the last year controlling GQRX quite successfully, and recently obtained a 706MKIIG. I cannot for the life of me get the rig control to work. rigctl is installed, and I can run it an manually change and query frequency - but that's it. No luck with having gpredict control it. I start rigctr with:
rigctl -m 311 -r /dev/ttyUSB0
And then start gpredict. The radio is configured as localhost with 4532 port. Not sure how to check if gpredict is actually sending commands or not, but if I keep the terminal window that is running rigctl on top, I see nothing being sent to that terminal.
Any advice? Thanks.
